Workshop for individuals interested in Farms and Local food

The Alberni Clayoquot Regional District proudly presents:

“Outstanding in their Field”

Everyone is welcome to come to a one day workshop at North Island College.

The event is for anyone who has an interest in farming and local food production.

The cost, per person entry fee, is $10.00.  Everyone is welcome to invite friends to attend the event.

The workshop will be educational for gardeners and non-gardeners alike.

We do not advise bringing children, to this event, as other classes will be in session.

Sustainability should be everyone’s concern, because a natural disaster could render us all helpless.

The event is to be held on Sunday, April 26, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We will all meet at North Island College, Port Alberni B.C.  Students will be on hand to direct people to the proper rooms.

Healthy snacks and dark chocolate will be provided in the cafeteria, as well as coffee and other beverages.

Sorry, soft drinks and other unhealthy snacks will not be provided as it would be contradictory to our purpose.

Raw vegetable plate, onions, garlic, lettuce and such will be offered for those willing to taste the difference organic gardening makes in comparison with store bought vegetables, which are nutrient deficient by the time they get to our table.

Freezing and other methods of preservation will also be discussed.  For example, the value of owning a dehydrator.

Plus, how much healthier it is to eat food still rich in enzymes.  Food destroyed by the heat through cooking, for example.

The Young Agrarians.  Leasing of Farmland.
Suzanne Belanger.  Pemberton Barn Project and Randy Churchill.
